Neil Macdonald is Professor of Geography at the University of Liverpool. His research focuses on developing a better understanding of how climatological, hydrological and geophysical extremes are recorded and have historically impacted societies. It explores how individuals and communities have historically adapted and responded to extreme weather, but also periods of mundane weather.
The research spans several centuries using a range of information sources including archives, epigraphic markings, environmental reconstruction, and instrumental information.
